A blogger has copied and posted one of my hub on his blog. Despite my messages and mails to him, he has not taken any steps to remove the post or modified it to link back. I need help in reporting the blog post to Blogger Help so that they take swift action.

This is terrible. He/She should have provided the backlink to your original Hub. I will report this. If he doesn't listens, I will find out the way how to do it (Jab sidhi ungli se ghee nahin nikalta toh ungli tedhi karni padti hai).
Hi SS i just left him a comment to provide back link to your hub otherwise delete that post
It looks like they are running adsense, so you might want to report them here as well. I'm not sure if reporting them to blogger will be internally escalated the AdSense people or not. Getting their blog shut down will hurt a little, losing their AdSense account will hurt a lot more.
It is sad they needed to copy your hub for there blog. It really is wrong of them. They did link back to your Hub though on the bottom of it.
Just because it links back doesn't make copying it right. Hopefully you can get them to take it down.
Best of Luck,
k sunseven. did my share in calling blogger's attention on this matter.
This still seems ethically wrong because the source isn't listed on the blog. Nobody would look to the source. I know plagierism is rampant, but its too bad. It looks like a lot of work went into SunSeven's hub. How do you find out it this is happening to you? Do you have any tips?
It's possible that the blogger in question doesn't even know that your post is on his blog.
Many blogs these days run totally unattended, and the "author" doesn't even know what appears on them.
The entire process is easy to automate.
And by publishing your work with an RSS feed, you are effectively giving permission for it to be used elsewhere with proper attribution.
(The last "S" in RSS stands for Syndication - which is the process of your work appearing in many, many different places.)
And when I looked at it, the "Source" link goes back to Sun Seven's hub.
So, sorry - you have nothing to complain about.
(but what would I know. I'm not a lawyer)
Yeah, the source link is alllll the way at the end of the post, so at least you'll get a backlink or whathaveyou. It'd be nice if people asked permission though.
If I'm not mistaken (which I could be,) the comments are what is syndicated on each hub and not the hub itself.
Also, each hubber's profile is syndicated which allows the subscribers to get an update on the hub author's newly published hubs.
RSS does mean syndication, however it doesn't mean that anyone other than the author has the authority to use and republish the content.
The author's content remains the author's property. Anyone that uses that property without proper authorization (creative commons and other such licenses included) is committing a crime and can be punished and fined for such crimes.
Am I correct in saying that? (Again... I could be mistaken.)
PS1. Still happily hubbing.
PS2. Gamergirl - I like your new hair!
It's all a bit of a grey area (Except for gamergirl's head - which is a pink/red area :-) )
Many people are putting a disclaimer at the bottom of every article that is available by RSS.
see http://www.newsniche.com/protecting-you … notice.php
The HubPages RSS feeds only include a brief summary of the hub, so I don't see how anyone could interpret their availability as license to steal and repost the entire hub
Hello SunSeven, I just posted a comment on his blog threatening him to either delete the post or shorten the post size and provide a noticeable Backlink or I will make shouts against his blog as SCAM get his Google Adsense Terminated which is very easy. Let me see what happens. Keep an eye.
I guess your comment is moderated and then deleted.
Is there any software that can disable an article from being copied...?
I commented and reported it also. Hopefully it will be removed before much longer.
Thank you for all the support and guidance friends.
Paul, thanks for the link . I have reported the blogger.
Nothing has happened till now. The post is still there.
Thank you for all your support friends. Finally after 8 days, the blogger has decided to make his post clean.
when you click "click here to read more..." on the mentioned blog it goes straight to your Hub. Your problem has turned into an asset, well done.

Please tell me what the difference is between writing a blog and writing a HubPage? If any?
